    Pulling tubes with my VXS

    Has anyone ever had a problem pulling tubes with their skis. I seldom have to go much above 20 mph to get a good whip going but the tow loop looks so thin I'm curious if anyone has had a failure.

    I pulled a doa 24' center console on our first trip out in the keys, an
    Bout 2 miles with no problem. Also kids on a tube all the time with no issues, other than all the spray from the tow rope being so low.
